Sligo-based pop-punk masters The Dead Flags release their second single, the blistering, catchy, energetic ‘Anymore’, on November 6th in Ireland. The band has been going from strength to strength since the release of their debut single “O My Love! O My God!!” and their EP “We’ve Got Ways And The Means”. Through non-stop touring and a top 30 singles chart position they have earned both an ever-growing following and increasingly enthusiastic critical acclaim in the past twelve months.
“The Dead Flags are not just good, they’re irritatingly good. Your daddies died in the punk wars for this” – Jackie Hayden, HOT PRESS Magazine
Produced by Karl Odlum (Ham Sandwich, Fionn Regan, The Frames, Mark Geary and The Aftermath) and mastered by Kevin Metcalfe (The White Stripes, Supergrass and Snow Patrol), this single represents The Dead Flags at their absolute finest and is the first sampler from their eagerly anticipated debut album. The song is inspired by, according to vocalist Billy, “those Eels or old Smokey Robinson songs where the lyrics are down and sad but the music is really upbeat and energetic”.
The Dead Flags are Billy (vocals, guitar), Dave (bass, vocals) and Kevin (drums, vocals). The band spent the summer of 2009 touring in Europe, with dates in Germany and Holland, as well as playing shows and festivals in Ireland.
To celebrate the release of this single from their forthcoming album, The Dead Flags are launching ‘Anymore’ at Whelans, Dublin on Wednesday, November 11th. The band is then setting off on a tour of Ireland, including dates in Belfast, Cork, Galway, Limerick, Donegal and Sligo.
Anymore is released in Ireland on Friday, November 6th 2009
